Of the 300 institutions where their system operates, 57 are schools, placing the organization as the largest school catering service in the country. The Slater System opened in 16 new schools this fall other than Longwood. In Virginia they also manage the diningrooms at Episcopal High in Alexandria. Episcopal Seminary in Alexandria, Roanoke College in Roanoke, Union Theological Seminary in Richmond, and St. Catherine's in Richmond. Mr. Carl Rhoades. assistant to the vice-president of the Slater System, visited Longwood earlier this week. While here from the system's central office in Philadelpha, Mr. Rhoades explained their organization and asked for constructive criticism from the students at any time. Mr. W. H. Miller, who has been here temporarily to help establish the service at Longwood, will be leaving the campus soon, but as Regional Supervisor he will return at lntervlvals to assist in keeping the operation working satisfactorily. Mr, W. Wagner has remained at Longwood to serve as the manager. Mrs. Bettie S. Hammond, former dining hall manager here, is now employed by the Slater System at Union Theological Seminary In Richmond. Mr. August Sanders. Slater's Regional Supervising Chef, has been on the campus recently and will continue to make frequent visits to Longwood during the year. The Slater System hopes to begin serving breaksfast by cafeteria service within the next few weeks, Longwood House will open under their management within the next few weeks also.

Slaylcr System Enough cannot i>r said in praiae of the introduction of the Slater System to the Longwood campus. This outstanding catering service has not only brought about a change in the quality and quantity of food served in the dining room, but it lias also caused a noticeable difference in the overall attitude of the student bod) towards mealtime, Heretofore, meals were a challenge to many. Students tried to Bee how little food they could eat and yet have their appetites satisfied. For several years the dining hall has been a wre spot at Longwood—a college service that upperclassmen ignored during tours tu impress would-be students. However, today with so many added services, the same spol has become a pleasure not to pass by. To be specific, the students have ap-

is nonsense. Anybody Who doubts that need only study the articles and advertisements In magazines and newspapers, noting the freqencj With which the "how to hold a man" theme is harped upon. The fact that this is not true of publications in Other countries, indicates that the American woman is far more obsessed with the fear of losing her man than is the case with her foreign Bisters. In actual fact, the American is the moal difficult man in the world for a woman to manage. That's the real answer to the question that seems to trouble people over here: "Why do American women fall easily for EuropeansT" It's not the suave approach of the Frenchman, the romantic allure of the Italian, the flowerj compliments of the Spaniard that are BO irresistible — it's simpW that, with tin in, a girl can tak< eaay, relax, be herself. To begin with, the European has been brought up in the tradition that any male is superior to any female, a belief which lends him a self assurance lacking In the American, who is not quite com inced that belonging to the stronger sex automatically him above the weaker one. As ;, result of Ins doubts, Ins ego must be perpetually "'in up. rin. "Oh, eat big wonderful man," routine has to go mi -1 hours a ila>.

plauded desserts for lunch, milk served in individual containers, and packaged cereals. In general, the students praise the system's policy of serving greater quantities of food without being wasteful. All members Of the administration and special dining hall committees who were concerned with initiating this new method deserve the thanks of every satisfied customer and customers the students are! Perhaps acceptance of this fact alone is the underlying reason for such a change in service. As the Slater System manages the dining room on a business basis, it follows more closely than did previous managements the time-old, but often quite true slogan in the eyes of a good businessman, that the customer is always right!

^ elconte You freshmen have had the same cordial welcome that Mrs. Lankford and I were given when we came to Longwood in mid-summer. Soon you will feel as much at home as we do and I am sure you already shore our enthusiasm over the pleasant prospects ahead at Longwood. Resolve now to include hard work and wholesome play in your schedule and these prospects are sure to become a reality. Pleosc let me help, whenever you think I can, to make your years at Longwood as enjoyable and as profitable as possible. F. G. LANKFORD, JR. President September 21, 1955

From the Bleachers By LINDA GARRISON As the new school year gets underway, another varied and active sports program also begins. For the benefit of the freshmen and those students new to Longwood I would like to highlight the athletic events and opportunities here during the year. A b.g event in the college each year is the winning of the Color Cup. This is awarded to the class color wining the majority of the athletic events held during the year. Sister classes, freshman-junior and sophomore-senior, support each other and strive to win each event contested. Each year the Cup. which is placed on the mantle in the Home Office, bears the colors of the classes winning the most points during the preceding year. The fall ushers in the hockey season, when both the varsity and class teams hold practices and schedule games. Tryouts for the hockey teurrts will be held in the near future and everyone is invited and urged to go out for hockey or to support the teams at their games. Recreational swimming is offered all during the year. Swim suits w.ll be available to new students for a small cost. The highlight of the water activities is the water pageant in December. Centered around a main theme, with beautiful and appropriate scenery, the pageant attracts many spectators. A swimming meet is held in February, when members of the different classes compete for points towards the color cup During March, Red Cross Life Saving Is offered. Color rush is in November. This Is a running competition between classes. December sees the beginning ol basketball, when both the varsity and class teams practice and have games through January, February, and March. Again everyone Is urged to participate, especially in the class games. Volleyball also begins in December, with both varsity and class Mr. Sam Graham taken at his office at Lonswood College a games continuing through January, February, and March. few days before his retirement as business manager For recreation during the winter months there are shuffleboard and ping pong events, with the tournament taking place in February. Seen and Heard April brings the outdoor sports—archery,—tennis—golf—and softball. The archery tournament comes in May, as does the Softball tournament. Tennis doubles begin in May also, following the singles which are held in the fall. Finally, at the end of the year, the coveted Color Cup Is awardBy JACKIK WALL ed to the Oreen and White or the Red and White teams.
